Brad Pitt’s Softbank Commercial

First it was Cameron Diaz causing Japanese boys to go gaga over Softbank’s new phones and calling plans. Now it’s Brad Pitt, campaigning to get screechy-voiced school girls to switch carriers.

Cameron Diaz, along with the new "call-for-free" concept that her commercials promoted, caused Softbank’s system to crash overnight when phone numbers became portable in late October. Maybe Brad Pitt will cause its handsets to spontaneously combust.
